The Morrison home of Alex Midyette’s alleged girlfriend, who runs the Montessori at the Homestead day-care facility from her house.

MORRISON — Just before Christmas, Linda Spicer said she noticed a man she hadn’t seen before hanging around her neighbor’s home.

A couple of times, Spicer said, she saw the man smoking outside the large custom-built home at 8111 Homesteader Drive where her neighbor, Christine Stonig, runs a day-care.

Spicer said she didn’t think much of Stonig’s new friend until law-enforcement officers notified her they were doing surveillance on the man, whom they identified as Alex Midyette, 29, convicted in Boulder County in the 2006 child-abuse death of his infant son.

“It’s a concern for the children,” Spicer said. “He’s been tried and convicted of child abuse, and it’s like being a child molester. If you do it once, you’ll do it again.”

Midyette was arrested Friday on suspicion of violating the conditions of his bond by contacting young children. He was convicted by a jury last month of criminally negligent child abuse resulting in death, but was free on a $1.5 million bond until his April 20 sentencing.

Stonig has two young children, Spicer said, and the daycare — the Montessori School at the Homestead — is licensed to take up to a dozen children ages 3 to 8, according to the arrest warrant. It has been licensed with the state since 2004.

When contacted outside her home Friday, Stonig declined to comment and called the children inside.

“I’m trying to run a business,” she said.

As parents came to pick up their children, she came out to meet them and brought them inside. All of the parents who left declined to comment to a reporter, except for one father who said: “It’s a great school. I have no problem with her at all.”

Another neighbor, who didn’t want to give his name, said Stonig ran a quiet business and had never been any trouble before.

Spicer said Stonig and her ex-husband moved here from New York and built their home together in 2003. She said Stonig is a funny and kind woman who “does a great job with the kids.” Stonig’s mother recently died, Spicer said, and she’s been through a lot lately.

“We love Christine,” Spicer said. “She has a heart of gold and would do anything in the world for you. That’s why we were thrown back a bit by this. We don’t understand why she would get involved knowing he did something like that.”

Even if Stonig meant no harm, Spicer said, Midyette “wasn’t supposed to be there.”

Divorced, recently lost her mother, sounds just like the emotionally vulnerable characteristics this loser looks for in his women. She’s also got some dough which should help out with his legal fees. Though if Alex is still married to Molly, who he sent up the river, isn’t he technically having an affair.Yeah this chick has great judgement. I always look to date married men whose wives are in jail for murdering their child.Too bad she’s not in Boulder or I’d have her look after my kids!If this neighbor were the friend she says she is she would counsel her friend to stay far away from this monster.

jaf, well said, but she shouldn’t be raising her kids. If her ex-husband (assuming he’s the children’s father) is in a worse mental state than she, than SS needs to move in and remove them.I seriously doubt that, unless he’s a raging alcoholic or drug addict.Otherwise, my sense is, if he can afford a home like that he has a reasonable state of mind and well being and he should retain sole custody, immediately!

Any woman that lets a man like this into her and her children’s lives is seriously debilitated.

I think she is now a lesbian.

I bet daycare moms divorced husband gets a lawyer all over this and gets custody of the kids.

From the tid bits it seems like daycare mom had him build a big home and them cleaned him out in the divorce. You know she is not paying for a home like that on daycare money.

Must be sweet revenge for her X.

If she is so irresponsible with her own children, not to mention those of other parents who pay her to keep their children safe, that she didn’t care about Alex’s drug history and a dead baby of his own who died under his “care”, then parents better learn who she is before another child ends up dead.

She should loose her daycare license and be sued by the parents whose children she WILLFULLY put at risk.

Is there actually a WORSE situation Alex could have chosen to put himself into, by the way?

The man killed his own child, even if the jury wimps gave him a pass on that. HE knows not only what he did, but that HE’S BEEN CONVICTED of child abuse, and under the conditions of his bond, HE KNOWS he shouldn’t be anywhere NEAR children.

Surely in the entire of Boulder County, there are other “Molly’s” out there without children around, just waiting with their rolled up dollar bills….

So why DID Alex pick a woman with children ALL AROUND HER? That’s one for the psychiatrists.

So, when the newspaper shows up to obtain a simple comment she responds with, “I’m trying to run a business,” but when Midyette shows up she allows him to ruin her business, lose custody of her children and put all of the children at risk? That makes a lot of sense.

Surely, she knew that hanging out with a person convicted of “criminally negligent child abuse resulting in death,” would result in losing custody of her children and her daycare business.I have custody of my child and I won’t even risk losing it by dating.

I have a hard time believing that a person who puts children at risk just so she can have a boyfriend has a ‘heart of gold.’ In my opinion, anyone who selects a handsome child killer over a nice dorky guy, needs to seek therapy in order to examine her priorities. She should also be charged with a crime since she choose to expose children to a known child-abuser, especially since she didn’t have permission from their guardians to do so.

I feel badly for her neighbor as she put the neighbor in a very tough and conflicted position.

Good for the media for printing her name, daycare location, so people know the truth about what she did.I guarantee you, she didn’t inform any of those parents until she had to, and wouldn’t have.Kids are sexually abused, abused, killed every day from “mom’s friend” that she had the terrible judgement to bring home, let alone, be around day care children as well.

hey, truthwillprevail – first of all, in this country we’re living in, porn and swinging is still legal. what the ex-husband does is irrelevant. you may not partake, but that’s ok, no one cares what you think about it. second, having alex, the baby murderer, around kids was against judge’s orders. so now the scumbag is back in jail.

pretty simple, even for you, yes? got it?

as for stonig, well, she made a really bad decision and now there will be consequences. she may even lose her clients and her business. but that is what we call personal responsibility. she has to pay the price for her poor decisions. i am just glad that the baby murderer did not hurt another child.

Check your sexism at the door, TWP.The man you call a “vindictive” husband took the necessary actions to get his kids out of a very, very dangerous situation.At least, I hope he currently has custody of the kids.And I hope he is awarded permanent custody.Christine Stonig appears to have nothing but bad judgment heaped upon bad judgment.Dating “multiple” men since the divorce (I’m sure her young children loved meeting all of mommy’s new “friends”).Attaching herself to a convicted felon, and we all know what he was convicted of (vs. what he got away with).Playing the rebellious teenager when her friend tried to warn her away from Alex.This woman is a mess.

Christine Stonig is a danger to herself, her children, and all of the children in her misguided “care.”That tacky house she lives in just goes to show you can take the girl out the ghetto, but you can’t take the ghetto out of the girl.Apparently the white trash mentality knows no socioeconomic boundaries.

Oh, I see. The responsible, wonderful mom and teacher took the “story” of a CONVICTED CHILD ABUSER, though HIS BABY IS CERTAINLY DEAD and he’s out on bond, awaiting sentencing.

But it’s the mean old porn-watching dad who called LE about it who is at fault here?

Right.

So exactly HOW is Alex different from the porn dad, anyway? Alex was WATCHING HARDCORE PORN WHILE HIS BABY WAS DYING and that’s a FACT. Alex is also STILL MARRIED, and that’s a FACT. Two women testified he provided cocaine to them in a bar; plus he had drug paraphenalia found in his home after his baby died of HORRENDOUS INJURIES in Alex’s care, and THOSE ARE FACTS.

If Mom/Teacher-of-the-Year thinks this is all easily explained away by “the other side of the story”, then she needs a reality check. Hopefully she just got it.

TheBitterTruth

3/21/2009 8:37:41 PM

I think you know the answer to your question, Bitter. If it actually goes to trial, the children will be witnesses to any contact, so they’ll be able to testify to that. If they can’t identify Alex as being present with them, others would have to testify to that or no trial. I certainly hope the children have been interviewed by a child psychiatrist working with LE.

Also the ex-husband told LE he saw Alex with one of the children on the elevator at the hospital. I hope if asked under oath, Ms. Stonig would tell the truth about Alex being at her home if children were there, but then she has something to lose, so she might lie. People do, and she doesn’t strike me as someone with scruples.

I am not arguing for or against pornography here. Someone else brought that up to criticize the father who called LE.

koldkase

3/21/2009 9:01:45 PM

Of course the old “pornography” canard was brought in; I’m sure Stonig attempted to use that in court to prove what a horrible man the father of her children, and her ex-husband, is.Women do all kinds of despicable things during divorce proceedings.Usually it’s more to get revenge against their perceived oppressor than it is out of any genuine concern for the children.If she cared about her children, she would not have subjected them to empty accusations against their father that involve him doing something that is perfectly legal and should be kept discreet among adults.But I’m guessing Stonig doesn’t much care about discretion and good judgment.

And I thought from one of the articles that the officers doing surveillance actually saw Alex playing video games, riding dirt bikes and watching t.v. with the kids (whether those are Stonig’s own poor children or the kids in the daycare, we don’t yet know).So I can’t imagine they need to bring innocent children in to testify about Alex’s presence.In any case, I hope Stonig’s children are spared any kind of court appearance.My guess is they’ve been through enough between all of mommy’s man “friends,” their mom telling them what a ba$tard their father is, and being encouraged to just “hang out” with a convicted felon to make their mommy happy.

snarly – I think Spicer was trying to make an analogy.She said a child abuser was *like* a child molester in the sense that if you do it once you’ll do it again.That is true of child molestors.But I don’t know what the “recidivism” rates are on child abuse.If you kill your child once, will you do it again?Someone else will have to Google the stats on that one.

You’ve got basically two scenarios to consider: your daughter’s potential teacher is either dating a convicted felon who got away with the brutal murder of his infant son, or she’s dating a convicted felon who let his child suffer and waste away and didn’t get him help in time, thus resulting in the painful and protracted death of his infant son.If you think either scenario speaks to Stonig’s character, then I guess you have a decision to make.

I read the verdict. Midyette was not convicted of inflicting harm on his child. He was convicted of negligence in getting to the child to the hospital sooner. He was definately cleared of harming his child.Why do you still say child beater. He was tried and acquitted of that charge.

On the flip side–Is it possible this woman did not know the full identity of this man she was dating? He probably didn’t introduce himself, “Hi! I’m Alex Midyette, the supposed child-abuser you’ve been reading about in the papers these past few years? I’m still married, but you might say ‘separated’ since my wife’s in jail for killing our baby. I’m awfully lonely, you know, between courthouse visits and lawyers meetings.. Hey, nice house… How ’bout let’s go out and see where this goes?..”

Having been on the singles circuit, it’s easy in hard times to believe what you want to believe. And there are a lot of liars out there. How did they meet?On-line?Singles-bar?Set up? (Now THERE’s a story to research, Camera people!)

I’ve been given false names, false stories, all kinds of craziness.Some people are very, very good at covering up their past.Don’t be so self-righteous in your assumptions!If Alex Midyette is the liar and the creep people believe him to be, do you think for a minute perhaps he could have been doing the same number on her? For personal gain?Maybe…

Or maybe she’s just a desperate, lonely, idiotic nitwit.Could be that, too.I’d do a lot of research on someone before I let them hang out with my kids or near my daycare operation.Pretty dumb on her part.

I’d lay money that it’s a little bit of all of the above.

And, regarding some of the posts above, why are “all women” vindictive money-grubbing, cold-tailed shrews, ready to wring their ex’s for all they are worth after years of denying them pleasure?Oh, please!It goes both ways…I’ve seen it all. Stop stereotyping women as evil villainesses.There are a few villains out there as well. But very few are wholly innocent or wholly wrong.

Dear Bitter:

You seem to be very invested in this case. I dohn’t see you as any less biased than the “drunken, apoplectic agitators” you refer to.

If have not read anywhere that midyette was ever near the school. He was not convicted of inflicting injury on the child. Isn’t that a good thing?

Quote:If have not read anywhere that midyette was ever near the school.

The school was in her home, where he was staying overnight and hanging out at for months.

Quote:On the flip side–Is it possible this woman did not know the full identity of this man she was dating?

No, it isn’t possible.Her friend did the research on him, and Stonig said she DIDN’T CARE, and wasn’t going to stop dating him.

I have talked wih a person who knows C Stonig.I was told that, yes she did know who and what Alex Midyette is and she doesnt believe that he was guilty of anything.I have a hard time understanding how a woman that is a mother and runs a preschool would be willing to put her family and business at risk for such a POS.

“The school was in her home”

Take a look at the size of that home. Is there any eye witness testimony that Alex was ever in the area where the school was, or ever had contact with any school children?

The school is run out of the basement.The kids play in the back yard and do come onto the deck.If he is out on the deck in the morning then he is one door away from the kids.

“If he is out on the deck in the morning then he is one door away from the kids.”

*If* ??

And how — exactly — does that violate his bond conditions?

Who gave you this hearsay ? What’s their name?

Tdenver. Who said he was on the deck. I do not recall reading that. By the look of the house it may have more than one deck. Even if not. If there were no children then no children were there. Can the man go into a burger king if kids are there or how about the movies or any public place.

Perhaps the bond conditions are not clear.

Stonig calls her ex-husband a “sexual deviant”?That’s what all divorcees call their husbands when they decide to take a scorched earth policy.All that means is he wanted it and she didn’t.Didn’t want to muss her hair or something.Then, after turning him away and denying sexual affection for years and years, he looks elsewhere and suddenly he’s a…gasp…deviant!

I’ve never understood why women are so quick to try to attach all sorts of disgusting labels to their exes.I mean, if this guy was so awful, why did she marry him?And then, why have two children with this horrible lowlife?Clearly it makes her look like an idiot by association given that this is a free country and nobody forced her to pick that guy.But don’t try asking a woman like that for accountability.She’ll just pull the “he abused me!” card.Translation: he called her the b-word once.

The worst part is that she drags her two children through this.I agree with mcaulif – Stonig is supremely self-centered.If she had any consideration for her children she would not have exposed them to her crazy slander against their father.It’s a form of child abuse to say such horrible things about their other parent.It puts the child in an impossible situation.But clearly all Stonig cares about is herself.I sincerely hope the children’s father gets full, permanent custody.By reporting Stonig to the police, he has shown he’s the only one looking out for the kids.

Okay.The verdict is in.She’s a desperate, lonely, idiotic nitwit. And runs a daycare-school in her home.

Unbelievable.So this is how the conversation went?

“Hi, I’m Alex.”

“Yeah, I recognize your face from the mug shots in the paper. How could I forget such a vision of hotness? So…do you like kids, Alex?”

“Sure. I used to wrestle with my son all the time.”

“Father-son time?Great fun!Would you like to come hang out with me in my daycare palace? It gets awfully lonely and isolated out there…”

Yeah, Midyette is a screwed up spoiled rich kid who was too big a child himself to handle living with a real child. However, even if he was found legally responsible for the abuse and/or death of his child, doesn’t mean that now he’s “got a thing” for beating up little kids, or is cruising around Boulder County looking for preschools so he can beat them up.

Here’s Spicer’s logic (and the Daily Camera’s, or they wouldn’t have run this piece): Past behavior = future behavior, and harming your child = a compulsive desire to harm all children. What a bunch of idiots! And this paper supposedly “wins awards” for journalism.
